A Children’s Treasury of Mr. Spock Being Unimpressed With U.S. Politics

by Wonkette Jr.

We're not impressed, either.Oh hooray, there is a new Internet Meme, just in time to Make the Internet Laugh Again, during this era of gloom and strife and unspeakable bullshit. Mr. Spock is a demon from the not-actually-popular television melodrama Star Trek, which was a cultural contemporary of the Sid & Marty Kroft show H.R. Pufnstuf and The Velvet Underground and Nico and the comeback presidential campaign of Richard Nixon. It was a time just like now, but without anything memorable. That’s why what we have instead of creative culture in the 2010s (social media) has a new fad starring Spock looking unimpressed with whatever anybody is doing — especially Boehner and Obama and the rest of these Captains of the Titanic.

This was also Wonkette's response.“Illogical,” said Mr. Spock. “Alex Jones said Osama bin Laden died in 1999.”

One of these was actually named 'Enterprise,' because of Mr. Spock.Why would this unpatriotic devil alien not be impressed by the final launch (in 2011) of a series of low-orbit space gliders built in the 1970s?

England's least favorite flower girl.Spock is also unimpressed with those inbred bucktoothed prematurely-balding Germanic “royals” in Merry Olde England. [Tumblr]

Boy, I really know exactly how he feels. I was just called a music snob by people who like Train and sneer at whatever alt rock I listen to because they "never heard of it" and it wasn't in some commercial for a tampon.

MAYBE I AM SNOBBY.

LettucePrey July 29, 2011 at 2:39 pm

Have you heard the joke about the indie music snob?

What…. you haven't heard it?

baconzgood July 29, 2011 at 2:43 pm

What? How can you not LOVE Lindsey Lohan.

prommie July 29, 2011 at 2:46 pm

Do you have the T-shirt, that proves you heard them first?

Billmatic July 29, 2011 at 2:48 pm

I'm not even that guy! I just got into Deerhunter last year!!

Meh. I have a chunk of the guitar he ruthlessly smashed at the end of the show.

How long will they keep on making him new ones?

As long.

Swampgas_Man July 29, 2011 at 4:18 pm

But you can't wear your Spock Tshirt at a Spock concert, because that would be uncool!

LettucePrey July 29, 2011 at 2:49 pm

Q: How many music snobs does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
A: Oh, some obscure number you've never heard of.

I really hope that is NOT an eclectic light bulb…

MissusBarry July 29, 2011 at 3:24 pm

(a) Maybe you should avoid talking to people who like Train. (b) Tampon commercials should be eradicated and replaced with female arousal cream commercials because menstruation is fucking disgusting.

Billmatic July 29, 2011 at 3:33 pm

When you're stuck in a cubicle for 8 hours a day you kind of have to talk to people like train and refuse to listen to Sleater-Kinney because they've never heard of them.

MissusBarry July 29, 2011 at 3:49 pm

I understand, and am pretty lucky in the people-I-sit-near department. I also have ear buds in either to listen to music I like or avoid talking to people I don't.

Billmatic July 29, 2011 at 3:58 pm

My friend regales me of tales of working for a non-profit where she has conversations with her coworkers about Sleater-Kinney.

For some reason I'm stuck with the set of ladies that aspire to be suburban soccer moms and don't understand how I find music when I don't even watch TV!!!

genxr July 29, 2011 at 3:57 pm

And when you're stuck talking to these Train fans you want them to be fresh like a summer breeze.

DaRooster July 29, 2011 at 4:05 pm

However… they never are.

SorosBot July 29, 2011 at 3:37 pm

Great, you had to mention Train; now you've got that horrific Hey Soul Sister song stuck in my head, dammit; I'd rather have Friday stuck there.

prommie July 29, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Put some Drops of Jupiter in your ear, that should stop it.

not that Dewey July 29, 2011 at 4:40 pm

My neighbors used to sing "drop some goop in her"

Amo_of_Bogio July 29, 2011 at 3:38 pm

What, no love for The Velvet Underground & Nico?

Billmatic July 29, 2011 at 3:56 pm

I said "I wanna be a singer like Lou Reed"
"I like Lou Reed" she said sticking her tongue in my ear

rite? it was great stuff. But I am old, so whaddu I know.

GortRay July 29, 2011 at 4:55 pm

I really know what that's like. In 1967 I was one of about 3 kids in my concrete bunker of a high school who were listening to the Velvet Underground and the Mothers of Invention. Even now, nobody ever heard of them.

DashboardBuddha July 29, 2011 at 3:27 pm

I must say, in all respect sir, that you are woefully mistaken. Pistols at dawn?

baconzgood July 29, 2011 at 3:35 pm

Base ball bats with a rail road spike in them. That's how I roll.
http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/James_T._Kirk#

DashboardBuddha July 29, 2011 at 3:40 pm

That's cool. You can have Spike and I'll keep the pistol. 20 paces ok?

DashboardBuddha July 29, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Oh…and the Kirk thing? At least Picard doesn't have a speech impediment.

SorosBot July 29, 2011 at 3:43 pm

Please; anyone with taste prefers Picard, the only Captain it is acceptable to prefer is Sisko. Note that Picard never got taken out like a punk by a bridge.

Come here a minute July 29, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Surprisingly, however, the Spock watching the YouTube videos of Republican congressmen getting arrested for drunk driving is laughing his head off.

Captain_Quark July 29, 2011 at 2:36 pm

Maybe the old pediatrician Dr. Spock could offer some advice on how to deal with these problem children.

Beowoof July 29, 2011 at 3:32 pm

Dr. Spock would say the only thing to save the world is to give them a good spanking and send them to bed without supper.

KenLayIsAlive July 29, 2011 at 3:33 pm

With this fucking bunch I'd rather get some advice from Dr. Kevorkian.

"live long and prosper" Not if the tea party has anything to do with it.

memzilla July 29, 2011 at 2:38 pm

Kirk: "What do you think of Boehner's approval ratings, Doctor?"
McCoy: "He's dead, Jim."
Spock: "I agree. His decision to wreck the economy, for the sake of political advantage, was quite illogical."
Red-Shirted Crewman: "AAAAAAAARGH!" *thump*

Today, we are all Red-Shirted Crewmen.

If being unimpressed with duh Boner were a career option, I'd have, like, a gazzillion dollars now and would be telling all of you to suck it AND DONT RAISE MY TAXES. Unfortunately, it is not and I am just as fucked as everybody else.

LabRodent July 29, 2011 at 2:41 pm

Did Spock have a last name? Or was he like doing the one name thing like Seal and Sting did. (its friday)

forgracie July 29, 2011 at 3:03 pm

He was asked that once (remember the planet where he got sprayed with funky sunflowers and went all goo goo for a chick?) Anywho–she asked him that and he told her "you couldn't pronounce it."

Good Lord I'm a nerd….

But in the darkest depths or Mordor, I met a girl so faaaair. But Golum, the evil one, crept up and slipped away with her errr, her errrrrr, yeahhhh. . .

tejanojim July 29, 2011 at 7:43 pm

God I hate that lyric. What was the narrator doing in the darkest depths of Mordor? Who is this girl, and what was she doing there? And Gollum is small, did he put this girl in his pocket? Did she go willingly? If so, how did Gollum and this girl escape from what I assume to be the lowest levels of Barad-Dur? Narrator, same question? Were some or all of them in league with Sauron, and if so, to what end? Gah!

Don't judge me, this thread was nerdy before I got here.

bureaucrap July 29, 2011 at 2:45 pm

In the situation room pic, I can't help but notice that the president has a direct view of Mr. Spock's crotch. Are you trying to suggest that our Barry likes the alien boiz?

Pres.Beeblebrox July 29, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Kirk/Spock is so 90's. Barry/Spock is the new slash.

Ruhe July 29, 2011 at 2:45 pm

Is Spock the modern Krampus, here to hit us with a switch for being so utterly boring.
Or is he the manifestation of the Universe itself, a la The Stranger, benignly indifferent to our incompetence and impending doom. Maybe Sarah knows.

I can't see the phrase "beam me up" without thinking of corrupt Ohio politician, Jim Trafficant, who used to use that phrase on the House floor. In my head, I hear it spoken in Jimbo's voice, too. Hashtag that under shitthataintright

Jukesgrrl July 29, 2011 at 10:00 pm

Wasn't he afraid his hair would beam up and he would be left on the floor?

MissusBarry July 29, 2011 at 10:11 pm

Seems plausible. Or maybe some sort of magnetic field acting on his belt buckle.

Tundra Grifter July 29, 2011 at 2:51 pm

It is no wonder Star Trek wasn't actually popular.

In every episode, their spaceship was going to run out of gas.

Any being they met in outer space was going to try to kill them. There just are no friendly aliens.

And any passenger on the USS Enterprise was wasting money purchasing a round-trip ticket. The life expectancy of each guest star was about 60 minutes.

BerkeleyBear July 29, 2011 at 3:13 pm

There were quite a few friendly (green and horny) aliens, but only for the Captain.

Monsieur_Grumpe July 29, 2011 at 2:51 pm

It would be interesting to imprint a Teabagger's engrams into an M5 type of computer. The resulting torrent of illogic most entertaining.

To boldly go… to Walmart.

Beowoof July 29, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Well Beck and Limbaugh either didn't go or failed miserably when they got there so you may have a point.

Nope it is a valid point, the uneducated being led by the uneducated. America!

comrad_darkness July 29, 2011 at 5:37 pm

If you know how the world and government and the economy works you are just an elitist who makes them feel bad about themselves. That's unacceptable.

gullywompr July 29, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Doesn't matter. As Limbaugh will tell you, he's only half-Vulcan.

Beowoof July 29, 2011 at 3:40 pm

Has any one told Limpbaugh he is a half-brain?

DahBoner July 29, 2011 at 3:06 pm

"Vulcans can perform mind melds with members of most other species, most notably Humans"

The cost of the royal wedding was way more than reported if they budgeted for a ceremonial Vulcan three-way.

Moonbat July 29, 2011 at 3:37 pm

On the other hand, if they put the ceremonial Vulcan three-way on PPV, they could probably have turned a profit on the whole thing.

jus_wonderin July 29, 2011 at 3:43 pm

Though, Vulcans only have sex every 7 years. So someone, not sure who, might end up injured.

Nostrildamus July 29, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I dunno. Have you priced dilithium sex cream or transparent aluminum dildoes lately?

jus_wonderin July 29, 2011 at 3:54 pm

"Computer? Com-pu-ter??"

I like those new Star Track shows with the hot model chicks that prance and strut around in leotards and have big tits, but they fuck up their face just a little bit to remind you that they are ALIENS!

Definitely like Gilligan's Island in space.

Wish I could do that photo shoppy thing. I'd put him with Stephen Hawking.

jus_wonderin July 29, 2011 at 3:41 pm

That's a good idea. I can work that up for ya. I might try to put him in a frame with Sarah, but I fear his stoicism and disinterest would not be geniuine as in that scenario the unemotional Spock would be screaming "STFU you cunt!"

Geminisunmars July 29, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Let me know if you do that (the Hawking thing). The Sarah thing – now that would be too cruel to poor Mr. Spock. He'd spend the rest of his life sputtering "does not compute — does not compute — does not. . ."

SorosBot July 29, 2011 at 4:39 pm

You wouldn't need photoshop with the superior show; Hawking appeared in a TNG episode with Data.

Geminisunmars July 29, 2011 at 4:49 pm

Always – the next generation thinks it is the superior show.

Maybe a photo with Hawking and Data. Now that would be seriously unimpressed.

We still have 2 out of 3 branches of government operating, and that ain't bad.

Wait, wasn't he the guy who said that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few … or the one? (Right before he died from teh radiationz).

I thought Obama was Spock…

genxr July 29, 2011 at 3:58 pm

I would make a picture of Spock being unimpressed with a picture of Spock being unimpressed, but I'm like, meh.

Would someone explain the logic of this to me…I'm all ears.

It's the three pillars of the Teaparty…

• Hooverrounds (yes double oh) and
• Parody

Beam me over to one of the more functional banana republics, Scottie!

One might thing the Romulans are evil. Hmmm, might be true. But, geez louise, they get shit done!!

No S.S. payments–my parents are already dropping hints they may be paying me a very long visit…

You say is was a not very popular show, and the numbers back you up. Still, here we are nearly a half century later, after six TV series, eleven motion pictures, and G-d knows how many games novels and spoofs and cultural references. Something about these guys stumbling around cheap interstellar sets really struck a chord with people. Why do you suppose that is?

And when the hell did the Party of Lincoln become the party of Gomez Addams?

Man, I *still* have screaming acid-flashback nightmares about H.R. Pufinstuf. Sid and Marty were some fucked-up dudes.

DerrickWildcat July 29, 2011 at 6:48 pm

Back in the day, I used to get on the Prodigy BBS and get on the Star Trek BB and tell everyone that I was one of the top 10 experts in the world on Star Track. They banned me . I was also banned from the Stephen King BB for always saying Steve King (I am a good friend of his and good friends call him Steve).
My GF and I also started a topic,
"Who is tougher: Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys!?
Unbelievably, this turned into an ugly flame war.

Negropolis July 29, 2011 at 9:04 pm

Boy, what I wouldn't pay to see Spock Vulcan Death Grip, or Vulcan Mind Meld with, the GOP.

flamingpdog July 30, 2011 at 1:16 am

Vulcan MInd Meld with the GOP = Vulcan mental masturbation.

ttommyunger July 30, 2011 at 2:18 pm

WTF?

weejee July 29, 2011 at 3:12 pm

ftw

jus_wonderin July 29, 2011 at 3:17 pm

We will find that Obama is an ancestor of Spock on his Mother's side – Amanda Grayson.

One of Sasha Obama's great, great grandchildren will be a Grayson.

bagofmice July 29, 2011 at 5:09 pm

Does that mean Michelle will wind up sticking a funky headset in her ear?

My fantasy rock band just changed its name to "Ragged Claws."

DaRooster July 29, 2011 at 4:04 pm

A guaranteed fix for them to like it-
Charge them to listen to it.
In all the bands I have been in I refuse to do a gig without a cover charge. I don't mind if the money goes to someone other than me but if you don't charge at the door people complain endlessly… if you do charge… it's the best thing they have ever heard.

prommie July 29, 2011 at 4:07 pm

I've been with Dunder-Mifflin for 8 years now. My neighbor in the next office, his very favorite band is Asia. Second favorite is Howard Jones. This is all true stuff.

MissusBarry July 29, 2011 at 4:44 pm

I'm so sorry. You probably don't want to hear that the chick in the cube across from me introduced me to Amanda Palmer. We drink together a lot, too. Hell, I drink with everybody in the office who's willing to throw a few back. But, take heart, we're bureaucrats…you don't have to work at a non-profit to sit near people who don't take their music tips from commercials..

Billmatic July 29, 2011 at 4:20 pm

It's weird how true this is.

I'm intensely critical/snobby no matter what but you know, such is the life of a cynic. You just see shit everywhere.

Doktor Zoom July 29, 2011 at 4:53 pm

Try this peach.

starfanglednut July 29, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Srsly. Kirk is a cheesy douche who chases anything in a skirt, no matter the species. Picard is totes awesome.

DashboardBuddha July 29, 2011 at 11:03 pm

right on

baconzgood July 30, 2011 at 12:46 pm

That's what makes Kirk AWSOME!!!! Who watches Star Trek for anything but it's cheesyness? That's like going to the Sizzler and ordering a salad.
